Parcel Theft

The Police in Ramsey have said they think an opportunist thief may be operating in the Ramsey area; targeting parcels that have been left on doorsteps/in clear view by local couriers.

A statement said: ‘If you order items to be delivered to your home/place of work, please take extra care to ensure that there is a safe and secure place in/at which they can be left. Alternatively, arrange for your deliveries to take place at a time when you or a friend are available to receive them in person.

‘It only takes a second for someone to pick up a parcel without drawing too much attention to themselves, leaving you out of pocket and without the product/s that you ordered.’

PC Neil Edwards is the officer in charge of investigating these matters, and can be contacted at Ramsey Police Station.

Stamps

On Monday July 4, Isle of Man Post Office’s Stamps & Coins division will be issuing a set of six stamps that celebrates the substantial and proud history of Culture Vannin’s support and promotion of Manx Culture and the Arts, over the last forty years (just in time for Tynwald Day).

The Post Office said: ‘The six stamps represent the six core pillars of Manx culture, superbly illustrated by Manx-born artist Jay Cover. Having previously worked with Jay on previous stamp collections, Chinese Year of The Ox and Manx Folk Traditions, we were delighted to have Jay’s support again on this issue.’

Aviation

The sustainable future of aviation was the clear focus of the 10th Isle of Man Aviation Conference, organised by Martyn Fiddler Aviation and supported by the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry.

There were over 130 industry professionals attending from business aviation sectors in the Isle of Man, UK, Europe and USA.

Simon Williams, Director of Civil Aviation for the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry, said: ‘I’d like to thank everyone, particular the team at Martyn Fiddler Aviation, for helping to make this such a successful event. This event is hugely important as it not only showcases the Isle of Man as an Aviation Centre of Excellence but disseminates industry information whilst providing an excellent opportunity for all of those in the industry to reconnect, particularly after this long break.’
